I saw Chris Powell on Doctor Oz and thought I would buy his book, CHOOSE TO LOSE for my kindle. Just trying to do what he said, on Dr. Oz not knowing what was in his book. I managed to lose 4.6 lbs the first week. While reading the book I again did what I learned by watching the show, and my second week I lost 5 lbs more. For a total of 9.6 lbs.
I only exercised 2 times about 15 min each time. I know I have to up that and I will.
I have now read the book and see the mistakes I have made. I am surprised I lost the first two weeks.
I have the grocery list printed, and I am going shopping tomorrow. Hoping to do the plan correctly this week.
Blessings to all!!

Ok, Insurance rep called yesterday. Bad news...the doctor doesn't want to do the gastric bypass on me, just the sleeve. I don't have the money to have the sleeve.
I am not upset...I am kind of relieved in a way. I was starting to get very nervous about what if something did go wrong and died during surgery. So when this news came I was ok with it.
So I am back to doing it the old fashion way....so far I have lost 9 pounds just doing the diet they gave me to do before the surgery. It is a High protein, low carb diet.
I am surprised at how satisfied that I am doing the diet. So far it is working...so I am going to try and stick to it as long as I can.
My goal not to quit...and if I hit a plateau change it up a bit and try something new. Usually when i hit a plateau and it lasts for more than a couple of weeks I fall of the wagon....so the goal is to keep going. Strive harder and lean on family, friends and prayer.
Today was a good day.

I have exactly 1 month before my gastric sleeve surgery. I am excited that I am having the surgery. Something I have thought about ever since these types of surgeries started. I finally got up enough nerve to inquire about them and now I am waiting for my insurance to approve it. The insurance adviser didn't seem like they wouldn't approve it. ....she keeps saying they are going to approve it, don't worry. So if all goes through then on Jan. 14th I will be having my surgery. I am so excited!!!! but nervous, because I have never had surgery before...not sure what to expect and all. So keep me in your prayers.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas.
I start 14 days prior to surgery a low carb, low fat...high protein diet. This is to shrink my liver and of course to loose any weight before surgery.
Hope to keep you all posted as time approaches.
